anyone know the best way to stain/etch/paint plastics?
Depending what plastic it is and the colour it is atm you could use plastic dye.
I’ve used it lots of times to dye plastic parts on my RC stuff.
For ABS like the stuff they use to dress cases, standard rattle can paint should have enough solvent to attach permanently.
For something like plexiglas, you will need a self-etching primer.
its plastic fairing and panniers (think these are abs) on my motorbike that i want painting i used plasticote on them a couple of years ago but some paint has begun to flake off
Try Krylon Fusion. This paint is specifically formulated for plastics.
